Measuring sustainability in cotton farming systems - ICAC/SEEP Report

Description: The report, “Measuring Sustainability in Cotton Farming Systems,” was produced by ICAC's Expert Panel on Social, Environmental and Economic Performance of Cotton Production (SEEP) in collaboration with FAO and with input from identity cotton programs.

The report provides an overview of sustainability issues in cotton and takes stock of indicators used to measure sustainability. These are then rated to arrive at a set of common indicators that can serve as a basis for discussion within the industry on the development of a framework to further enhance sustainability. As the final report will not be ready in time for the upcoming Plenary, it was decided to present an executive summary to provide an idea of the ongoing work.
